Wiping over the Khimar (Hijab)



Shaikh Salih Ibn Fawzaan Al Fawzaan said in his explanation of Zaad Al Mustaqni’:

The Khimar (Hijab as is known in Trinidad) if it is on her head in that it is tied under her neck to the point that it is difficult to take it off then she wipes on it because it has been narrated from the Prophet that he ordered that the women wipe their Khimars.


Umm Salamah used to wipe over her Khimar, and because in taking it off there is hardship on the woman, and she is in need of it (wiping over it), especially when she is travelling or when it is cold. And her need in wiping over the Khimar is not less than the man’s need in wiping over his turban.
